Priyanka Chopra delighted us with the first pictures from her sangeet ceremony in Jodhpur, which was held earlier at the Umaid Bhawan Palace.
Priyanka, who shared a series of stunning photos from the ceremony, rounded off her sangeet-special album with a video, which has glimpses of groom Nick Jonas performing with his family and other highlights from the function.
The pictures are proof that Chopra-Jonas sangeet was hundred percent filmy, which further brought the two families closer.
The essence of the sangeet was best summed up by the bride, who wrote: “It all began as a fierce song and dance competition between the families but ended, as always, as a huge celebration of love.”
In the captions, Priyanka revealed how much fun Team Groom and Team Bride had during the sangeet. “Nick and I were looking forward to the sangeet (musical evening), another pre-wedding ritual… and to see what each side had put together. And what a performance it was,” read an expert from her caption.

It all began as a fierce song & dance competition between the families but ended, as always, as a huge celebration of love. Nick and I were looking forward to the Sangeet (musical evening), another pre wedding ritual.. and to see what each side had put together. And what a performance it was. Each family telling our stories through song and dance, filled with lots of laughter and love. We were both filled with gratitude for the effort, the love and the laughter and will carry the memories of this special evening for the rest of our lives. It is an amazing start to a lifetime of togetherness for our families and friends…#grateful @nickjonas 📹/📷: @calebjordanlee @josevilla @josephradhik
The photos released by Priyanka’s team offer glimpses of Parineeti Chopra’s performance and reveal that Priyanka was joined on stage by her mother Madhu Chopra. The Ambanis were also spotted seated with the bride in the front row.
Before you ask Priyanka what exactly went down at the wedding, read her detailed caption: “Each family telling our stories through song and dance, filled with lots of laughter and love. We were both filled with gratitude for the effort, the love and the laughter and will carry the memories of this special evening for the rest of our lives. It is an amazing start to a lifetime of togetherness for our families and friends.”
Described by Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas wedding festivities appear to be right out of fairy tale. “Millions of fairy lights and mirror installations lit up the Umaid Bhawan grounds to create an enchanted wonderland. It was as if the sky and earth danced as one to celebrate this union,” they wrote on their official page.
Priyanka and Nick are maintaining a strict policy about their wedding photos and only offered the first glimpses of their sangeet ceremony a day after they dropped pictures from mehendi.

One of the most special things that our relationship has given us is a merging of families who love and respect each other's faiths and cultures. And so planning our wedding with an amalgamation of both was so so amazing. An important part of the pre wedding rituals for the girl in an Indian wedding is the Mehendi. Once again we made it our own and it was an afternoon that kicked off the celebrations in the way we both dreamed. @nickjonas
